Undergraduate students in environmental science need a foundation in instrumental analysis as much as traditional chemistry majors, but their needs may be quite different.
Environmental Chemical Analysis provides an explanation of analytical instrumentation methods for students without a background in analytical chemistry.
This second edition features expanded material on sample preparation and quality assurance and control.
It also includes new chapters on biological analysis and analysis of environmental particulates.
It brings together sampling, sample preparation, and analytical techniques necessary for environmental applications, demonstrated through case studies of actual environmental measurement protocols. Provides comprehensive coverage of all aspects of environmental chemical analysisExplains analytical instrumentation methods for students approaching the subject from a different angleIncludes two new chapters on biological analysis and analysis of environmental particulatesExpands material on sample preparation and quality assurance/quality controlIncludes case studies, detailed references, chapter problems, and a solutions manual
